After the release of his book, in which the former right hand of Anna Wintour put excerpts of privacy, style beads and professional experience, André Leon Talley has also decided to take care of the exhibition The Little Black Dress, sponsored by MAC Cosmetics and Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
The exhibition, which includes 50 articles of clothing designed by the most famous designers to celebrate the little black dress, was inaugurated on the occasion of the Paris Haute Couture at the Mona Bismarck American Center for art and culture (in which will be open to the public until September 22, 2013) and was introduced by a cocktail party which was attended by 300 guests. Afterwards, a dinner more “intimate” and especially private: the court of Paula Wallace, president and co-founder of SCAD, John Demsey, President of The Estée Lauder Companies and the same Talley, gathered 100 VIP guests who have celebrated with a dinner in style at the restaurant Monsieur Bleu.
“The exhibition emphasizes the strength of individualism, tracing the evolution of the little black dress from its definition and traditional to the most contemporary form and innovative experiments in terms of fabrics, colors and shapes,” says Talley, among the dresses are in fact also a selection of iconic designer dresses (Chanel, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Stella McCartney, just to name a few) already “tested” by celebrities Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker and Rihanna.
For the occasion, MAC Cosmetics has created several makeup look to complement the garments on display. “The combination of a little black dress with the right makeup look highlights the personality of a woman. With the LBD in the wardrobe and the perfect makeup palette, a woman has all the tools to feel their best at every occasion: from the boardroom to the ballroom, “says Gordon Espinet, Senior Vice President of Makeup Artistry. After all we know: the garment and makeup complement each other and each enhances the other.
